Fairmont Le Château Montebello

Rustic retreat meets luxury when you’re meeting at the Fairmont Le Château Montebello, the world’s largest log cabin resort. A sprawling red-cedar lodge on the shores of the Ottawa River, where team building amongst 65,000 acres of natural beauty, or hiding away to discover your group’s next big idea highlight meeting agendas. The Château has hosted the G7 and NATO summits and has welcomed royalty and dignitaries from around the globe. Exclusive and exceptional, it’s just 90 minutes—and a world away—from the nation's capital and just the kind of private location discerning organizations search for.

Planning Essentials

Get a good night's rest

Enjoy all the rustic elegance and warmth of a wilderness lodge without compromising on luxury or amenities. The tone is set as your group enters the lobby and is greeted by a stunning six-sided stone fireplace. It’s classic Canadian log-built resort, backed by the internally known Fairmont brand. On-site offerings include spa, health club, indoor and outdoor pools, golf course, restaurant, bar and more.

Stretch your budget in Canada

It’s a fact. Event dollars go further in Canada. With the Canadian dollar hovering between 25 and 30% below the U.S. dollar, planners are encouraged to enhance their meeting experience here. Dollars saved on the program requirements can translate into more bells and whistles or your bottom line, you pick.
